Off on our big holiday. First stop was Cahors. had a wander, found a bridge and found a great place for lunch

Then back in the car and off to Toulouse – check on hotel – wander and couple of Cosmos at ‘natural juice’ place – they had great kick at the end 🙂

Off to find place for dinner, ate at restaurant just outside hotel and lovely it was too



Then off to Perpignan – yes we didn’t know either. Very grand hotel/ spa like thing, and lovely cheese and ham sandwich for lunch on arrival was lovely too.

So didn’t plan to but spent the day near the pool, pooped in the pool to and it was fucking icy  

Horrible ‘Arse Art’ in the room

After sitting by the pool all day, and because the setting was so lovely expectations were quite high for dinner 

The food was fine, but service not great and overall bit dissappointing   – but setting was magical


We were brave and tried the breakfast, cold crepes?

Then off to Spain!

Took just over 2 hours and we were in Sitges

Wander round, popped in Hotel Romantic for Kir Royals


Back to hotel Calipolis. On arrival we were told best room/ view in hotel, we did wonder about the music we could hear from somewhere

Out for dinner


Unfortunately the music from somewhere was noisy and a sleepless/ restless/ changing rooms night followed.

So decision made and another hotel found we checked out into the Hotel Melia, which is lively and much more a 4 star than Calipolis    


There were many memories of our holidays



Fizz on the balcony and off to the port/ harbour for cocktails and dinner – and much much nicer place than the centre  


We managed to get table to eat, at 12pm, desserts at 12.30!



Over to Cap Salou after seeing lovely view and breakfast in mad mad breakfast room

Into what used to be Jolly Sailor for curry half chips and rice. And very lovely that they have is discount


Funny that there is now a San Francisco bar there

Off to little beach for coffee and water



Back to port for dinner



Off to Cadaques via some Greek/ Roman ruins



Fabulous wig!

Onto Cadaques to hotel, wander round and dinner at Lebanese restaurant – although we were told on arrival that we had to eat quickly as table was booked for hour and 15 later

Monday 24th August
